Trainee Programs


Rödl & Partner offers diverse opportunities and provides the chance to chart individual career paths. Our trainee programs, eXplore Corporate Finance and eXplore Audit, will train you to become a top advisor for our clients within two years. Right from the start, you can shape your journey: you choose your track, your focus areas, and even your location.

Development Programs for Career entry


Stepping into the professional world can be daunting. Transitioning from the academic environment of your university or college to a client-oriented work setting in a company requires adaptation. However, you won‘t be left alone; instead, we support you with targeted training and specialization, for instance, through our Tax Starters program in tax consulting and our Audit Academies in auditing. Serving as the foundation for our talent program, SmartUp offers a comprehensive training concept for the optimal career start and prepares our talents for the next career phase.

The secondment was one of the most valuable experiences in my life and I will keep the memory for the rest of my life. It helped me to understand how my clients feel when living in a foreign country which feels like it is 100,000 miles away from your home town.
